Lindsay Lohan has no regrets, she insists, despite the legal and family problems that have plagued her and impacted her career. “I want to be known as an actress, not a troubled starlet,” Lohan tells Us Weekly during a lengthy sit-down interview. “[I regret] nothing, because then I wouldn’t have been able to cry in scenes at the drop of a hat. I have tattooed, ‘Live without regrets.’ I’m not saying I wanted to go to a jail cell, but I’ve drawn from it.” Well, she might have even more to draw from soon, as it looks like she’ll have her promotion revoked for lying to police after a summer fender-bender, according to TMZ, and that could lead to more jail time.

While Justin Bieber may still be making attempts to win back ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, at least one influential personality thinks he should cool it — and maybe revise his previously stated plans to be married by 25, too. “I think 25 is too young, actually, I really do — particularly for you,” Oprah Winfrey tells Bieber during an interview. “Your whole 20s is about discovering who you really are. You owe that to yourself, particularly because of the business that you’re in [where there's] not a lot of self-discovery time because so much is already defined for you.” To Bieber’s credit, he at least seems to acknowledge her authority, responding, “You are Oprah and you’re telling me to not get married when I’m 25, so I should probably listen to you.”

A week after being cleared of of allegations that he’d had a sexual relationship with a minor, “Sesame Street” puppeteer Kevin Clash — the man behind the popular Elmo character — has resigned amid further allegations and an impending $5 million civil suit from a second accuser, according to the Associated Press. “Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from ‘Sesame Street.’ This is a sad day for ‘Sesame Street,’” a spokesman for Sesame Workshop says in a statement. Clash’s initial accuser had recanted his statement, but then recanted his recantation, saying he had been coerced by Clash’s legal team.

Maybe the feminists had it wrong, at least according to Cameron Diaz. “I think every woman does want to be objectified,” she tells the Sunday Times. “There’s a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it’s healthy. I’m a woman, I know how to handle myself. I know what I feel comfortable doing, and I know my sexuality.”

While his “Twilight” co-stars, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, have each other to turn to romantically, Taylor Lautner isn’t so lucky, and dating isn’t easy for the actor. “I do have to be more careful. I would be lying if I said that I don’t guard myself more than I used to, but I don’t want to be too guarded,” Lautner tells Look magazine. “If you have so many walls up that you can’t even make new friends or find new relationships, that would be a bummer.”
